Obama late last week took two days off from the campaign and visited his ailing grandmother. You can look at this from two sides. On the one hand, as long as he doesn’t show up to any rallies without pants on, he really should have this thing locked up. It is his to loose. So, hiding away for a few days isn’t the worst strategy. On the other hand, you say that running away to Hawaii comes at a very inopportune time. He should focus all of his energy at the task at hand.

It should come at no surprise that I am in the former category. I think that he has every right to take the time that he needs. In fact, I respect him a bit more because of it.

I personally try to live my life with as few regrets as possible. For the most part I have been successful. However, one regret that I have is that, when my grandmother was sick, I didn’t drop everything and visit her. I am not delusional as to think that me being there would have done anything for her, however it would have done a lot for me. She was there for me while growing up and is (was) very special to me.

So, I support you Barack. I am glad that you were able to visit someone important in your life during their time of need. God hope I have someone who will do the same for me.
